Scientific Advance, with that name the electronic magazine of the Productive Scientific Pole of Matanzas was born.
“The magazine emerged in 1998 with a first printed issue, but with the arrival of the internet in the province –which, fortunately, of CITMA and particularly of the Information and Technology Management Center (CIGET), was the first to have that medium- , we created the magazine electronically”.
This is how Silvio Leonel Curiel Lorenzo, president of the Matanzas Subsidiary of the Cuban Society of Information Sciences, describes the birth of that publication.
«The magazine is done on a platform that humanizes editorial work, it means that the same contributors, publishers and reviewers can work online, not only in a center, but outside the country’s borders.»
Advanced …, commented the CIGET specialist, has the theme innovation.
“Any topic of innovation, say organizational, open, technological, social, occupies space in our magazine. Here experts from the country and the rest of the world can pay taxes; each article is evaluated by Cuban or foreign reviewers who do not know who the author is. Based on their decisions, the article is published or not”.
On the search mechanisms, Curiel Lorenzo explained:
‘Articles can be located on the internet from a series of variables, items ranging from the author’s name, job title, keywords,”
With these details, Scientific Advance is published, an electronic magazine whose themes of greater impact are the environment and innovation, in addition to the technological advances of Matanzas province.
